Upgrading from H60

Last response: in Overclocking

I have an i5-3570k with a H60 in push/pull config. I want better cooling but my case won't fit a H100 rad but my case does have the holes for a custom water cooling setup. So here is my question.

Would I be better off buying a better corsair closed loop or would using this setup be better?

rad - http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
res - http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

197 dollars before piping/fittings/coolant.

I'm aiming for a OC of 4.5Ghz that will stay under 70c in 24/7 stress test in prime95.

Why not just an XSPC kit?

Two more dollars, much higher headroom and its everything except water and a killcoil,
**Edit, and you can add your gfx card in later if you wish with no need for extra rads
If you don't know what a killcoil is, the next step is the Watercooling sticky up top
